The summer is heating up, and so is Hulu with a smorgasbord of new shows and movies. July sees the return of the beloved animated comedy "Futurama" as well as ABC's long-running dating show "The Bachelorette." Other new Hulu originals include the true-crime docuseries "Mastermind: To Think Like a Killer" and season two of Marvel's adult animated series "Hit-Monkey."

If you’re not sure what to watch next, there's a ton of movies to look forward to this month as well. For those who love a good horror film, Jordan Peele's "Get Out" will be coming to the platform. Or if you're in the mood for something a little more family-friendly, "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" makes its Hulu debut this month.

Here are some of the best movies and shows to watch on Hulu in July.

'Futurama' season 12

Watch On

Last year saw "Futurama's" unexpected return from its 10-year hiatus, and this month the Planet Express crew is back for even more new episodes with the premiere of season 12. The highly anticipated season 11 quickly became one of the streamer's most popular titles, with fans and critics alike commending Hulu's back-to-basics approach for the revival. 

With season 11, the streamer brought back the sharp wit and humor that made the original episodes so beloved while folding in much-needed updates to some characters and relationships, which viewers have greatly appreciated judging by its 86% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes. While we don't know much about where the story will go in season 12, many of the beloved cast are set to return including Katey Sagal's Leela, Lauren Tom's Amy Wong, and, of course, John DiMaggio as the irreverent, beer-guzzling robot Bender.

'The Bachelorette' season 21

Love is in the air as "The Bachelorette" returns for its 21st season. This time, former "The Bachelor" contestant Jenn Tran will be handing out the roses, making her the first-ever Asian American lead of the popular ABC dating series. 

On July 9, Tran will kick off her journey to find her person — and hopefully end season 21 with a ring on her finger. She'll have a lot of options for her soulmate among the 25 men in the cast, including an aerospace engineer, a sommelier, and a startup founder who made Forbes' 30 Under 30 list. Her journey will begin at the now-iconic mansion in Los Angeles, and then move on to destinations in the U.S. and across the world.

'Mastermind: To Think Like a Killer'

Watch On

From executive producers Dakota and Elle Fanning comes the new docuseries "Mastermind: To Think Like a Killer," a gripping deep-dive into one female FBI agent whose innovations changed crime-fighting as we know it. 

Dr. Ann Burgess, who, at one time, was the only woman working in the FBI, learned to think like a serial killer through her illustrious career investigating the most heinous murder cases in the '70s, '80s and '90s. As part of her research, Burgess would interview infamous serial killers like Ted Bundy, Montie Rissell and Ed Kemper to peel back the layers of their damaged psyche and see what patterns could be gleaned for future cases. Her work went far beyond the FBI, though, as she shone a spotlight on the plight of women in America.

'Sonic the Hedgehog 2' (2022)

Watch On

The first "Sonic the Hedgehog" was an unexpected delight, bucking the trend that most video game adaptations are absolute trainwrecks. And the sequel proves every bit as fun, seeing the Blue Blur (voiced by Ben Schwartz) face off against the evil Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) once more—this time with a few friends by his side that fans will recognize. 

As in the first film, Carrey steals every scene he's in, but Idris Elba is equally hilarious as the dim-witted yet formidable echidna Knuckles, who becomes a pawn in Dr. Robotnik's revenge scheme. Sonic's new best friend Tails (voiced by Colleen O’Shaughnessey) rounds out the cast and adds a touch of heart to the story. I really enjoyed "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" when I saw it in theaters, and I wholeheartedly recommend it if you're in the mood for a fun, light-hearted watch.

'Get Out' (2017)

Watch On

I'm not exaggerating when I say Jordan Peele changed the horror landscape forever with his 2017 debut film "Get Out." This film masterfully blends the slow-build psychological tension of horror classics like "The Shining" and Rosemary’s Baby" with biting social commentary on racism, the pitfalls of neoliberalism and the portrayal of Black characters in horror movies.

Daniel Kaluuya stars as Chris Washington, a young Black photographer whose white girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) invites him on a trip to visit her family's estate. But what begins as a typical weekend getaway soon turns into a nightmare as Chris uncovers disturbing secrets about Rose's family and their attitudes towards race. Without revealing too much, "Get Out" is a gripping and thought-provoking film that should be on everyone's must-watch list, whether you're a horror fan or not.
